The Government of Bhutan has released its official list of public holidays for the year 2009.
As was the case for 2007 (03-Jan-2007), the upcoming list of public holidays in Bhutan contains non-trivial changes as compared to last year's list of public holidays.
A new annual public holiday commemorating the 2008 signing of the new constitution (16-Jul-2008) has been set to coincide with the existing November 11 public holiday and a November 6 annual public holiday commemorating the 2008 Coronation of the Fifth Druk Gyalpo (04-Aug-2008) has been instated.
The first document released by the government, last night, contained 2 errors. It showed the cancellation of the Dashaim public holiday, whose date was based on the Lunisolar Bhutanese calendar, and an annual Constitution Day on July 18, rather than November 11.
